Weekly Update (#103)
I feel unstoppable. I feel and look better than ever. Although, unfortunately, losing weight doesn’t fix ugly, so I’m stuck with that. But at least my body is still changing (I don’t like self-depreciating humor often, but sometimes it’s the only joke available.)
I’m really doing well by holding a “cheat day” on Saturday. I still eat a little bit than I normally would on Sunday, and I still eat well during the week (Chic-fil-a during the week, Chipotle, regular dinners, etc), but the only day I don’t count calories is Saturday. It’s working pretty well. I have a pretty ramped up metabolism at this point, and anything that I gain over Saturday is quickly lost by Monday morning.
Cheat days give us a break from the norm and allow us to be free.
As a side note, I never really liked the term “cheat day,” but it’s a lot shorter and much quicker than typing “days when I just don’t count calories and can eat anything.”
So, I just call it a cheat day.
Last night was the first time I was able to get into the gym since Sunday due to the epic snow storm we had in South Carolina. The ice and snow closed everything down over the past couple of days — the government, work, gas stations, everything. It was a great release to finally get back into the gym and throw some weights around (followed by 30-minutes of cardio) while listening to my emo music.
I don’t plan on missing another day at the gym this week, come hell or high frozen water.
Let’s get back below 200 pounds and beyond, shall we?
